A road has been closed due to a heavy amount of fly-tipping.

Thong Lane, in Gravesend, was shut after someone chucked their unwanted rubbish on the side of the road.

Among the rubbish is a sofa, chairs and some old carpet.

Anita Belcher alerted people in Riverview of the rubbish via a Facebook post.

She said: "Be careful driving through Thong Lane today, looks like someone has dumped the contents of a house down there and it’s alllll over the road!!!"

Gravesham police's twitter account announced the road was closed.

They tweeted: "*ROAD CLOSURE* Please be aware that on THONG LANE at the Junction of Vigilant Way through to The Inn On The Lake is closed due to fly tipping. #Riverview #flytip #WeAreAware FS"

Police were called at around 5am and alerted to the incident of fly-tipping.

Highways England are now dealing with the road closure.
